There is an inordinate silence
After the devastating cyclone!
The wild wind blew for several hours
People were cocooned in stable towers
Branches of trees flew like kite
Marble stones flew like birds flight
Now, I see a hush all around
The sun utterly refuses to rise
Clearing up job -the sky denies
Chirping birds are not singing
Common folk are afraid of moving!
Is this the day we ever expected?
I predict a bright sunshine tomorrow
People will not again visit sorrow
Everything will gradually settle down
Love and Peace will be restored soon
Pray God never to cause
A catastrophe once again
No one should feel the pain!

When the poet says "everything will gradually settle down / Love and Peace will be restored soon", he draws upon his internal energies, as called upon by Bhagawat Gita to ‘Uddharet Aatman aatmanam".
I have no doubt that this poem calls for deeper understanding and analysis from more angles.
That is why, I have no hesitation to give 5* and to add this poem to Myfav.
after the cyclone wind blows hours violent, snapping trees like match sticks, throwing cars trucks like pees, the world is devastated silent, nature rests quiet birds refuse to sing, survivors seek quiet time to rest
I wrote the poem 'Eerie Cyclone Spent Stillness Beats Loud', inspired by the poem 'A Catastrophe', by the poet Dr Dillip K Swain and dedicated to the poet Dr Dillip K Swain.
A very positive poem; its the hope for good which makes us cope with disasters
Dear poetess Evelyn Judy Buehler, I value your thoughtful comment a lot...thanks and regards!
Yes, every catastrophe is followed by a meaningful silence, a silence for preparing a catastrophe in the minds
I love this poem's beautiful message of optimism and positivity, of riding out the storm, until better days.
This poem has not been translated into any other language yet.I would like to translate this poem
I believe that catastrophes are God's wake-up calls to humanity. Rather than to blame God, let's sound a call to arms to protect and love Mother Earth!
